I am having some issues figuring out how to get my block crawl space to work with brick. For example, first layer is the footer, followed by 3 rows of 8 inch block, with a row of 4 inch block. This allows for about 3 5/8 inch for the brick to sit on. However, I cannot figure out how to do this with my options. I have no problem with the footer and 8 inch block, but how do I get the last row for 4 inch block with brick? Is there a catalog somewhere to download 4 inch block to allow for brick?

I'm just wondering if how I'm going about something is really the fastest and simplest method.
See attached elevation. All the arches and brick details I created in a CAD DETAIL FROM VIEW. I created polylines in the detail view, copied to my elevation view, then converted to either a material region or a P-Solid. Colored them as needed to look like brick or mortar. Even the step flashing shown is made from P-Solids.
It's all a bit time consuming...just wondering if there isn't a faster/better method?
Hello everyone, apologies if I was unable to find the solution for this in forums; I may not be searching for the correct topic. I have a building with an intersecting roof to a brick surface; the interior wall will be made of drywall and exterior surface above the roof of brick. Despite my best efforts, I have been unable to make this happen. I have tinkered with the knee wall settings along with attic walls, searched the help files for quite a while, but I only seem to be able to have brick on the inside & outside wall vs. the goal of sheetrock inside & brick on the exterior surface.
I must be missing something elementary in this; I appreciate anyone who can help me. After 12 years in Autocad, this conversion to Chief is proving to be a bit of a learning curve with the terminology. Attached are two annotated images & a drawing file example of what we are talking about.

This is an 1887 Victorian Firehouse - called "Hose Station # 8"
I used to own it - regret letting it go!
Doing an as built - lots of challenges
Windows - can't seem to get them to recess - it's a brick supporting wall structure - guess I need another wall inside to recess windows? Also notice the sill and lintels
Brickwork - lots of detailed corbeling - thinking applying mouldings is the way to do this
I saw an article about creating a brick and then applying it to mouldings - best way to do this ?
Door - notice the detail in the big door - for the horse drawn firewagons !
How am I going to get all the little window lites ?
Thanks for your help
